Heartical – a French label and sound – has announced the release of four unreleased singles on the Far East riddim, originally recorded at Studio One in the 70’s. The most well-known version is perhaps Barrington Levy’s Don’t Fuss Nor Fight/Sweet Reggae Music produced by Henry “Junjo” Lawes.
The riddim is rebuilt by Basque Dub Foundation and features nice performances from veterans Mykal Rose, Ranking Joe, Jah Mikey, Carlton Livingston, Papa Kojak and Josey Wales’ younger brother Daddy Shark.
The younger generation is represented by Spanish vocal duo Rootsmala and Chronicle, a Jamaican vocalist that recorded for many Jamaican labels in the late 80’s before going on to record for U.S. label Massive B.
These releases will be available on October 3 on vinyl 7” and on October 15 as legal download.
